Not aware of a graveyard but there are shipwrecks all along the coast. Most are clear in Google Earth looking at the pics people have uploaded

Hahaha, its called the 'boat cemetery' on the Tarfaya website not a graveyard

I know there are many wrecks, I guess I will just have to drive up the coast road and look for them

I really hope that ferry is still there, would make a fantastic photo op if we can get on the thing

Are they pictures of it on this website/forum somewhere?

cheers

Hello kingkurt

Have you looked on Google maps with the photo option ticked? Loads of photos of ships around Tarfaya on there.
